Pop up shops add intrigue to Hyde Park

The village is bursting with inspiration courtesy of their ‘flings,’ or temporary shops. One of their recent pop up shops, Dark Cycle Clothing, introduced Tampa shoppers to the now famous locally-grown clothing brand. Beginning May 12, Uncommon Finds, a fragrance boutique, will open its doors in Hyde Park Village.

Uncommon Finds procured a selection of fine, niche fragrances for men and women. Brands include 4160 Tuesdays, Acua Di Stresa, Agonist, Nasomatto, Yeye Parfums and Diane Pernet. The boutiques purpose isn’t to connect you with just any scent, it’s there to help you discover your own signature fragrance. Rob Atkins, owner and self-proclaimed scent junkie, opened the shop to introduce visitors to aromas they may have never encountered.

Along with signature fragrances and perfumes, Atkins also offers candles, perfume sprays, and oils. The boutique will be open from May 12 through July 16 at 1607 West Snow Circle.

Slated to arrive soon is Fig & Julep, a space offering an epicurean adventure. Enjoy tastings of specialty foods along with rare culinary gifts. The shop also offers home and cocktail accessories, such as oak barrels to properly age rum, tequila or bourbon. The store opened in Winter Park in December of 2016. The Orlando Sentinel  reports that the Fig & Julep is the sister store to The Ancient Olive — offering artisanal oils and culinary/home accessories.
